I'm glad to hear that its gonna be a pretty stout trans kit. I'm looking to buy either the PPE stage V or the alligator performance stage V kit.
either route you take you wont be disappointed. the main difference between the 2 is PPEs kit comes with a new apply piston and our kit machines down just the metal pressure plate. but if you got anymore questions other than what hasnt already been anwsered above let me know
i appreciate it! i'm just ready to get this bad boy built and feel the true power i'm trying to lay down!!!

your C3s sound like there about as black as Wesley Snipes
PPE does not machine down the apply piston. They are custom made new ones and I have yet to see a failure. The top plate in the PPE C3 plate is also machined. I designed this kit.

that would be a mistake from what Dan told me Mike and i apologize. and i have a pic that i would like you to look at if i can find it here shortly
I don’t think I ever told you our apply pistons were machined, They are specifically engineered for this application. Most other kits used machine stock pistons which tend to fail because of the machining on the rubber coasted piston. I might have told you the backing plates are machined.
So a machined piston is more apt to fail? Are ppes apply piston pretty pricey?
